This site is dedicated to the 27 million Veterans
who served their Country with honor. As members of the military we swore an oath to uphold and defend the
Constitution of the United States. We as Veterans have kept our oath. The Congress of the United States also swears
to uphold the Constitution, but have not kept the promises made to the Military.
The Firebase Network's Veterans Hour
started in January 2000 as a means to inform the public of the deplorable treatment our Veterans receive at the hands of the
V.A. and their willing assistants, the Congress of the United States, and nearly all chartered NVO's. Through
this radio program we have been taking the Veterans Rights issues to the people, we also provide our Veterans and Retired
Military Community with helpful information and a voice to air their grievances.
Your donations to keep this program on the air are welcomed. Many
hands make for light work. Please send what you can to,

Last Sundays program didn't air due to a server crash. Last weeks guest has agreed
to join us this Sunday. I want to thank Maj. Noone for his understanding and being available this week.
In 1982, Congress passed the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection
Act (USFSPA). This seemingly innocent attachment to the 1983 Military Appropriation Bill ran through the entire legislative
process with little publicity, fanfare, or debate. Its purpose, proponents said, was to provide
some degree of financial protection to the dedicated wives of military members. The USFSPA, was sponsored by Rep Patricia
Schroeder. This law applies only to the retired military
This week we will talk with John B. Noone Jr. John has first hand knowledge
of how un-fair this "fair" law is. In the 25 years it has been on the books there have been thousand of horror stories due
to this "Fair" law. John will cover the law suits that are trying to correct this law.
As always your calls and comments will be welcomed at 877-213-4329.
This site will be continuously under construction,
and updated weekly.
Thought of the week
If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations
during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.
The rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 firearm deaths
per 100,000. That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in our nation's capitol, which has some of
the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.
Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington
